Happy Friday ALL!!!!!!

Hey there people.Its Friday again already.. Yikes.. Where has the week gone?? Well I got the job as you all know and my orientation was only about two hours on Wednesday. I went in and finished my paper work and got my uniform and got the tour. I start on Monday at 8 PM to 4 AM. What hours HUH??? LOL... But from what I am understanding I will be mainly from 10 PM to 6 AM after I get trained in though. I will let you all know on Tuesday how the first night went.

The girls are getting an incentive to being good while I sleep. I told them that mom would give them a quarter a day to be good while I sleep and then dad said they can have a quarter from him too if they are good for me. They each have a piggy bank now and they can have there quarters put in there piggy banks. Will take them to the bank when they are full and either get cash or maybe open up an account for them that way.

Now on to Friday. Its raining and storming here today. Scattered thunderstorms but its nice right now so the girls are getting ready to go outside and play while its not raining. They dont like being in the house at all. They would rather be outside playing or something. One week from the 4th of July. Where has time went?? It seems like this last week just flew by.

I am looking forward to Monday but a little nervous. Like I told Jeff the only thing I like about working this 3rd shift is that I dont have to put up with alot of high school kids. I get tired of there mouths fast. They think they know everything and to be honest they know nothing.. I had an interview yesterday morning at a local grocery store here in town about four blocks from us and the funny thing is that they start all of there front people parttime and then they only start them at 6.80 an hour. Come on I mean with them being such a big coporation you would think they would offer there cashier/baggers more than 6.80 an hour. I mean McDonalds is starting me at 7.50 an hour and full time.

People.. And work places yeah right... Well hope you all have a great weekend. I promise to have photo's from what ever we do this weekend. I dont know exactly what we are doing yet. We have talked about going for a really long hike and fixing the tent since it ripped with the last storm we had but I found this stuff to fix it with and then we will camp out in the back yard. Cant afford to go camping right now but we can make good memories in the back yard with the girls and have a fire in this Buddha fire pit like thing a co worker of Jeff's left with us last summer.

Well I am off to do something not sure what but something anyway. Talk to you all Monday or tomorrow if Jeff has to work for a while. Enjoy your weekend and Let me know what you all are doing if you are doing anything at all.

Wow, $7.50/hr! L has been working where I work for 5 yrs, and just got up to $7/hr. Excellent!
No day care, $7.50/hr, and full-time; this job is perfect for you!

Mom yes it is. They have to keep us at a certain rate because Green Bay is so damned big and everything is so dang expensive so yes 7.50 an hour and that is exactly what Jeff and I were talking about with no day care costs.

congrats girl, we knew you could do it. may i make a suggestion though? aww shucks i will anyways without permission.

take a few bucks out of that brand new check and put it in an online bank that pays good interest. that will add a few bucks to the budget also.

Jeannie said...

It is good news. Hope it works out for you - that you are able to sleep and the girls behave. Will you be sending them to school in the fall or continuing the home schooling?

Gayle said...

Congratulations, Tweety. I knew sooner or later something would come up. This is perfect! :)

Bridget Jones said...

Yahoo and congrats Tweety!

Wish my parents had paid ME for being good (not that I ever would have gotten a red cent)!!!

tshsmom said...

Let the girls spend their money when it gets to a certain amount. They're still too young to understand the wisdom of saving.

Hammer said...

Good luck on your new job. They pay about the same here too because the turnover is near 100%

tweetey30 said...

Griper that is a great idea even though I dont even know where to start looking..

Jeannie Jeff and I will be homeschooling them even with me wokring 3rd shift. We will be taking turns and helping eachother this year.

Gayle I knew something would come up too but it was just taking so long to find something.

BJ I never really got an allowance either but this keeps the girls in line while I am sleeping.

Mom that is true. I will do that.

Hammer Its so dang expensive to live here that I wonder how we survived so long with out me working and now with everything rising. Gas, Food and on and on...

J C said...

CA said...

Congrat's from ca as well!!!

tweetey30 said...

Jim and CA thanks. I am a little nervous about tonight.

SME said...

It sounds like perfect hours for you guys - no babysitters or daycare needed! I liked the people I worked with at McDs in MN, but a few of the assistant managers were obnoxious sometimes. Night shift is great though, 'cause there aren't many customers and there's lots of time to get stuff done.

I hope tonight goes great for ya!

tweety,
ING.COM is a good place to start. they pay 3% on savings and there is no minimum.

WAMU.com is another one. they pay 3.25% on savings at the moment and no minimum there either.

and they are insured by fdic, so no worries about your money.
